WHITEWATER FIGURE MOVED TO MORE LENIENT PRISON

Whitewater figure Susan McDougal, who charges she was being mistreated in a county jail because she refuses to cooperate with prosecutors, has been moved to a more lenient federal prison, the American Civil Liberties Union said Wednesday.

The announcement came just over a week after the ACLU filed suit in Federal Court here to have her transferred from the Twin Towers county jail where she was isolated from other prisoners for up to 23 hours a day and forced to wear shackles for court appearances.

Ms. McDougal refused to cooperate with Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr in his probe of President Clinton and was jailed on civil contempt charges until the Whitewater grand jury in Little Rock, Ark., is disbanded, which is expected in mid-November.
